The SCA UK Barista Competitions

New for 2019 – Two SCA Competitions!

We are delighted to be hosting two SCA UK Barista Competitions this October at Caffè Culture. 
  • The London Heat of the United Kingdom Cup Tasters Championships 2020
  • The London Heat of the United Kingdom Barista Championships 2020

The UK Cup Tasters Competition draws in the best palates in the UK coffee industry. In the London heat, competitors have to slurp their way through 4 sets of triangle tests (three "cups" of coffee where two are the same and one differs) to spot the odd one out. The results are instant as contestants lift their cups to discover if a red dot on the base tells them they have selected the odd one out. The higest correctly identified cups in the fastest time is the key to winning! It's the coffee equivalent of a penalty shoot out!

The UK Barista Competition is the UK's premier coffee competition and showcases barista perfection. Watch exhilarating routines with each competitor being judged on their barista and customer service skills.

The Barista Heat will take place on Monday 28th October and the Cup Tasters Heat on Tuesday the 29th October.  Learn more about the SCA UK Championship
